Royal Exchange, City of London
Readers have been treated to the kinds of subjects dear to May and his pals, like their love of driver and rider sharing service Uber, something which May believes to be A Very Good Thing, as he mistakenly fixes on technology, rather than the arrival in the marketplace of a highly aggressive and utterly unprincipled corporate, determined to eliminate not just black cabs, but all sign of competition, from the capital’s streets.

After the Fawkes blog ran a routine attack on Burgon back in October, demonstrating that one of their number had been watching the ideologically unsound Channel 4 News, over the idea that Labour’s City man had not yet met with anyone working there, or representing those working there, City AM took up the baton, albeit at a glacial pace. On December 8, the paper put his face on its masthead.
And that brings the question May might have difficulty answering: what is his vision for his paper, other than the shock horror red-top style front pages and peddling of his pet hates before the readers? While that lingers in the minds of City folk, the question will continue to be asked why it was not possible to find an editor who had actually practised journalism, when so many publications were laying off experienced staff.
